What are you currently reading?
Sarwat Chadda – Devil’s Kiss
I’m starting this one today. I’ve never read anything by this author, so it will be completely new to me. This one is from the YA section of the library, where I picked it up based on title and cover alone – I didn’t even read the blurb on the back! I figured that sometimes it’s nice to have something that’s a complete surprise…
What did you recently finish reading?
Ellen Morgenstern – The Night Circus
When I first got notification of this novel’s impending publication, I fell completely in love with the hardback cover and just knew I had to have it. In the intervening time, I read synopses and then reviews before I bought it and everything pointed towards this being excellent. As a result, I had quite ridiculously high expectations of The Night Circus, but you know what? It pretty much lived up to them, which should have been almost impossible! The writing is just gorgeous and as the plot unfolds and the characters are developed, whilst hopping backwards and forwards in time to tell it, the mystery deepens till the reader is in exactly the same position as the participants – trying to work everything out and make sense of it all. It’s well worth reading this, so if you’re still on the fence, please do hop down on the side of “I’m going to try this book!”
Maria V Snyder – Fire Study (Study 3)
The final installment of the Study trilogy. Although I enjoyed this one, I wasn’t quite as enamoured of it as I was the others. The first in the series (Poison Study) is definitely the best, but that’s not to say the other two aren’t good – there’s marginal difference in my preference. Fire Study finished the story arc in a very satisfying manner with loads of action, adventure and intrigue between the pages.
What do you think you’ll read next?
Melissa Marr – Wicked Lovely (Wicked Lovely 1)
Chosen from the young adult section of the library. I know absolutely nothing about this series – I chose it based on the title (which I love!) and the cover (which is rather pretty).
